The Players Championship: Worst Hole Scores at the TPC Sawgrass

0 of 19

    The TPC Sawgrass has been the home of The Players for 30 years.

    In that time, there have been great scores, like the tournament record -24 by Greg Norman in 1994, or the course record shared by Norman and Fred Couples who both shot 63s.

    But those are the good numbers. The TPC Sawgrass is really known for the dreaded others. The doubles, triples and unmentionables.

    Here are those who hold the record for the highest scores at each hole of the TPC Sawgrass during 30 years of The Players.  Photos are from recent tournaments and are not the record holders.
